It’s obvious that I’M into the socks with heels look but how do YOU feel about the trend?

The duo seem to be on every leg that comes down every runway lately and obviously it flatters the 10′ tall 100lb models with legs for days but does it always, if ever, work for the average woman …i.e., you and me?

I definitely think there’s a time and a place for the look and that while it may be appropriate for the outfit, it may not visually work when all is said and done.

I love the idea of a really strappy shoe with a bright sock under just for the contrast which, in theory, makes it look like a completely different shoe. For instance, add a bright red sock with a black strappy shoe and now you basically have a red shoe. I just bought a pair of L.A.M.B. heels from a Gilt sale for that purpose entirely. I also like the idea of extending the life of summer sandals and open toe platforms by adding socks …making them warm enough for Fall/Winter wear …well, SoCal winters at least.

So what are your thoughts lady lovers? . . . never say never 😉
